Tallinn Airport (Estonian: Tallinna lennujaam, IATA: TLL, ICAO: EETN)
Tallinn Airport (Estonian:
Lennart Meri Tallinna
lennujaam) is the largest airport in
Estonia and serves as a hub for
the national airline Nordica, as well as the secondary hub for
AirBaltic and LOT Polish Airlines. It was also the home base of
the now defunct national airline Estonian Air.
Tallinn Airport is open
to both domestic and international flights. It is located 2.7 nautical
miles (5.0 km; 3.1 mi) southeast of the centre of Tallinn
on the eastern shore of Lake Ülemiste. It was formerly known as
The airport has a single asphalt-concrete runway, 08/26, that is
3,480 m × 45 m (11,417 ft × 148 ft)
and large enough to handle wide-bodied aircraft such as the Boeing
747, five taxiways and fourteen terminal gates. Since 29 March 2009
the airport is officially known as
Tallinn Airport, in
honour of the leader of the Estonian independence movement and second
Estonia Lennart Meri.
The airport has also been used for military purposes. It has served as
an interceptor aircraft base, being home to the 384th Interceptor
Aircraft Regiment (384 IAP), which operated MiG-23P aircraft.

Inside view of
Prior to the establishment of the present airport in Ülemiste area,
Lasnamäe Airfield was the primary airport of Tallinn, serving as a
base for Aeronaut airline. After Aeronaut went bankrupt in 1928, air
service was continued by Deruluft, which used Nehatu instead,
12 km (7.5 mi) from the centre of Tallinn. The first
seaplane harbour on the shores of
Lake Ülemiste was built 1928 to
1929 in order to serve Finnish seaplanes. The use of this harbour
ended in World War II. On 26 March 1929
Riigikogu passed an
expropriation act in order to establish a public airport. 10 ha
of land was expropriated from Dvigatel joint-stock company and another
22 ha was expropriated from descendants of Vagner. 10 million
sents were paid to land-owners as indemnity. Land leveling and
renovation works took another 5 million sents.

The building of
Tallinn Airport started on 16 November 1931, and the
first test landing was commenced by captain Reissar piloting Estonian
Air Force Avro 594 Avian, tail number 120. The airport was opened
officially on 20 September 1936, although it had been operational a
good while before the official opening - LOT Polish Airlines, which
commenced its first passenger flight from
Tallinn on 18 August 1932
with Fokker F.VIIb/3m from
Lasnamäe Airfield, later
relocated the flights to
Tallinn Airport and in 1935 the airport had 6
arrivals and departures on average every day. In April 1935 a ramp for
seaplanes was built on a shore of Lake Ülemiste, together with a
small arch bridge and a customs office, which allowed seaplanes to be
relocated from a sea port. The same year the airport administration
building was erected, which also served initially as a waiting place
for travellers. The total cost of the whole airport project, including
the cost of building flight hangars, was 25 million sents.
As the very first runways had soft surface, it made them unavailable
for takeoffs and landings during spring and autumn seasons. Therefore,
only seaplanes stationed at
Lake Ülemiste were able to carry out
flights, and during winter months, it was possible to use the frozen
surface of the lake as a runway for small airplanes. The concrete
paved runways of the first stage, inaugurated together with the
opening of the airport, were about 40 metres wide and 300 metres long.
As they were arranged in a form of a triangle, they allowed
takeoffs and landings in six directions. These were the first
concrete-paved runway in Estonia, it was needed some 5,396 cubic
meters of stone, 4,100 cubic meters of construction aggregate and 137
tons of cement to construct them.

In addition, 3 km of pipeworks was laid for drainage purposes.
Before World War II,
Tallinn Airport had regular connections to abroad
by at least
Aerotransport (now part of the SAS Group), Deutsche
Luft Hansa, LOT and the Finnish company Aero (now Finnair). On 5 April
1937 the Helsinki-Tallinn-Warsaw-Jerusalem route was inaugurated by
Mr. Bobkowski, the assistant of the Polish Minister of Transport. The
length of the route was 3,187-kilometre (1,721 nmi) and the
journey time was 34 hours. Passengers and cargo numbers grew
quickly, from 4,100 passengers and 6,730 kg of cargo in 1933 to
11,892 passengers and 14,726 kg of cargo in 1937. Preparation
and design works for a new passenger terminal started in 1938. 14
various projects were submitted for the architectural contest of the
new terminal building, with the one from the architect Artur
Jürvetson winning the contest in February the same year. The
construction costs were estimated at 300 thousand Estonian kroons. The
first airplane of then the flag carrier of Estonia, AGO, arrived at
Tallinn Airport on 5 October 1939, flying the route
Königsberg - Tallinn.
Estonia was occupied by Soviet Union, on 22 July 1940 the order was
made by Soviet occupation authorities to transfer the airport to
Soviet Air Forces. All aircraft, which were at the airport at that
time, including interned Polish Lockheed 14, two
Junkers Ju 52
Junkers Ju 52 of AGO
PTO-4 trainer aircraft of Estonian Airclub, were relocated to
During the German occupation, regular international connections were
announced on 16 October and already restored on 15 November 1941, when
Lufthansa and Aero O/Y started the route
Helsinki-Tallinn-Riga-Königsberg-Berlin. From 1942 to 1944
Sonderstaffel Buschmann was based at
Between 1945 and 1989,
Aeroflot was the only airline that served
Tallinn Airport.
The Old Terminal was used from 1954 to 1980
The construction of the new passenger terminal, which was put on hold
due to war, resumed. The building, which was redesigned in accordance
with the Stalinist architecture, was finished in 1954 and commissioned
on 7 November 1955. Regular flights with jet aircraft began on 2
October 1962 with a maiden passenger flight from
Moscow for then
newest Soviet airliner Tu-124. As the terminal built in 1954
became obsolete and unable to cope with growing airport traffic, the
construction of the current terminal building began in 1976 and the
terminal was opened in 1980, prior to the 1980 Summer Olympics sailing
event, which was held in the city. The architect of the new terminal
was Mihhail Piskov, who got visual inspiration from traditional
Estonian housebarns, and the interior designer was Maile
Grünberg. The runway was also lengthened then. The first foreign

The construction works of the first cargo terminal (Cargo 1), located
in the middle of future cargo area on the north side of the airport,
were carried out from September 1997 until March 1998. The
passenger terminal building was completely modernised in 1999,
increasing its capacity to 1.4 million passengers per year and
after that greatly expanded in 2008. The growing demand for extra
space for cargo operations, created a situation where there was need
for cargo terminal expansion, Cargo 2. In order to meet the
growing demand for new cargo facilities at
Tallinn Airport, the number
of cargo terminals was later expanded to four. In year 2012 a new
aircraft maintenance hangar was opened and a number of passengers
passed two million mark the first time in the history of the airport.
On 11 January 2013 the airport was accepted into Airport Carbon
Accreditation emission managing and reduction programme by ACI.
The year 2013 saw an introduction of an automatic border control
system and a start of construction of a new business aviation hangar
Construction of the terminal expansion
The airport underwent a large expansion project between January 2006
and September 2008. The existing terminal was expanded by
35,000 m2 (376,700 sq ft) and the architects of the
project were Jean Marie Bonnard, Pia Tasa and Inge Sirkel-Suviste.
The terminal was expanded in three directions, resulting in 18 new
gates, separate lounges for Schengen and non-Schengen passengers, 10
new check-in desks and a new restaurant and cafes. Due to the gallery
that connects all the gates and was constructed in the middle of the
terminal building the terminal became T-shaped. The projecting
terminal section enables a two-level traffic for international
passengers. The renewed terminal has nine passenger bridges. The
extensions constructed at the ends of the terminal building became
additional rooms for registering for the flights and for delivering
arriving luggage. Outside the terminal, the apron was refurbished
and expanded and a new taxiway was added. The new terminal allows the
airport to handle twice as many passengers as it could handle before.
The renovated terminal received the award "Concrete Building of the
Year 2008" by the Estonian Concrete Association.
The Terminal after its expansion (August 2012)
After the death of former president of
Lennart Meri on 14
March 2006, journalist Argo Ideon from
Eesti Ekspress proposed to
honour the president's memory by naming
Tallinn Airport after
him – "Tallinna
Lennart Meri Rahvusvaheline Lennujaam" (Lennart
Meri International Airport), drawing parallels with JFK Airport,
Charles de Gaulle Airport,
Istanbul–Atatürk Airport etc.
Ideon's article also mentioned the fact that Meri himself had shown
concern for the condition of the then Soviet-era construction (in one
memorable case Meri, having arrived from Japan, led the group of
journalists that were expecting him, to the airport's toilets to do
the interview there, in order to point out the shoddy condition of the
The name change was discussed at a board meeting on 29 March 2006,
and on the opening of the new terminal on 19 September 2008, Prime
Andrus Ansip officially announced the renaming would take
place in March 2009
Baltic Sea cruise turnarounds
Estonian Air at
In 2011 a new project of cruise turnarounds was launched in
Tallinn Passenger Port and Happy Cruises. More than
7,000 Spanish passengers travelled that year on charter flights to and
Tallinn Airport. As the airport is located only 5 km
from the city center cruise quay, transfer time from airport to cruise
ship is under an hour.
Pullmantur Air started its charter operations from
Madrid-Barajas Airport with three Airbus 321s and two to three Boeing
747s. During the summer 2012 about 16,000 tourists were
transferred. The company continued operations in 2013,
transferring 25,000 tourists in five turnarounds, as well as there
was one partial turnaround operation for the cruise ship MS
Deutschland operated by Peter Deilmann Cruises.
In 2015, cruise tourists were attended to by four airlines – Iberia,
Iberia Express, Wamos Air, and Vueling. Some 5,000 passengers were
expected during three turnarounds for
Pullmantur Cruises cruise
Tallinn Airport served 9,369 cruise turnaround passengers in
2015. No cruise turnarounds are expected in summer 2016 due to
construction works, but the airport plans to continue them in
Demise of Estonian Air
On 7 November 2015,
Estonian Air was liquidated following an adverse
decision by the European Commission. This meant a significant
temporary loss of business for the airport, as
Estonian Air had been
the largest carrier, accounting for ⅓ of all capacity in 2014.
Nordica Bombardier CRJ900 landing at
According to Erik Sakkov, board member of
Tallinn Airport, the future
plans include expanding the runway by 600–700 metres to serve
regular long-haul flights, also building of a brand-new taxiway,
new storage facilities, a new point-to-point terminal and expansion of
the existing passenger terminal, so it can serve arriving and
departing passengers on two different levels. On 21 February 2013
the environmental impact assessment of the airport development project
started. The project includes the runway lengthening by 720 metres,
installation of the ILS
Category II equipment, also lengthening of the
existing northern taxiway till the end of the expanded runway,
constructing of a whole new taxiway and a new apron area on the
southern side of the airport, installation of the new perimeter
security systems and constructing of an engine test facility and
dedicated snow storage and de-icing areas. Among other benefits
the extension would enable planes to fly higher above the city of
Tallinn by moving threshold of the runway further from Lake Ülemiste,
thus reducing noise level.
The public discussion of the runway extension environmental effects
evaluation report took place on 16 December 2013 and the construction
work to extend the runway has begun on 1 May 2016. The length of the
renovated runway is 3480 meters, the construction contract was
concluded with Lemminkäinen Eesti. On 17 November 2016 the airport
administration reported, that the runway expansion works are
completed, thus the runway became the longest one in the Baltic
states. The runway and the main taxiway were extended to the east
and a new system of navigation lights was installed. In the summer and
autumn of 2016 the construction work caused restrictions on nighttime
flight operations but had no impact on scheduled operations. The soil
of the safety area around the extended runway was enforced to reduce
potential risks to aircraft in the event of runway overrun or
excursion. In the course of the expansion work in 2016 some 45,000
tons of asphalt and 4,000 m3 of concrete were laid down, also 60
kilometers of new duct access was built and 100 kilometers of new
cables and 400 new navigation lights installed, as well as 10
kilometers of new rainwater removal infrastructure built. The
expansion of the airstrip increased the airport's safety area by 41
hectares and five kilometers of new service roads were built. The
whole expansion works must be completed by the end of
Tallinn Airport's runway 08/26
On 12 June 2013 the City Administration of
Tallinn approved a detailed
planning for a 0.91 ha land plot, on which a new 4,430 m2
(47,680 sq ft) maintenance hangar is going to be
built. Total five-year investment plan amounts of more than
100 million euros. The airport is investing €126 million during
the 2015–2021 period. The most important project is the
reconstruction of the runway infrastructure at cost of €75
million. Additional investment of €2.5 million would be made in
flight terminal in order to change its layout and improve the
terminal's security, capacity and VIP area. А multi-storey car
park for 1,200 vehicles and 150 taxis would be built due to
the consistently increasing need for parking spots around the airport.
Work on the task and procurement conditions of the parking structure
began in 2014. It will be located in front of the passenger terminal
and should be completed in 2017 according to current plans.
Airport museum and activity centre
The museum is located in a small building near the terminal, also a
relatively large area nearby will be transformed into open-air
exhibition. Two ancient cult stones, which are necessary to move
during the expansion of the runway, will be transferred to that
exhibition. The whole museum plot will be separated from the airfield.
The museum will have a direct access from E263 motorway (shares the
same route with Estonian main road 2). Additionally, a platform
with a view onto the runway will be constructed, giving good
possibilities for aircraft spotting. The activity centre opened in
There are one passenger terminal and four cargo terminals at the
airport. As the airport's current facilities could not serve more than
2.5 million passengers per year and the number of passengers is
rapidly growing (38.2% in year 2011), the new terminal for
discount airlines will be built.
Terminal building 2006
Estonian EXPO Center year-round permanent exhibition is located near
the Gate 3, acting as a live advertising space where promotion
representatives introduce the companies taking part in the
exhibition and help finding cooperation partners in particular
fields of business. The center was opened on 22 July 2010. VKG has
opened an oil shale themed exposition at Gate 4 on 9 January 2013,
showing the history and development of Estonian oil shale
industry. The Estonian Tourist Board has opened a brand new "Visit
Estonia" themed exposition at Gate 5 on 2 October 2013. The gate is
divided into three parts: a children's territory with a Lotte-themed
playhouse, an interactive, informative waiting area decorated with
Estonian national patterns and a bridge from the gate to the airplane
that introduces travellers to Estonian nature.
Transit area of the terminal
A lending library was open on 9 May 2013 in a special area by Gate 1.
All books were donated by public including Estonian president Toomas
Hendrik Ilves and the First Lady of
Estonia Evelin Ilves. The library
will have books in ten different languages, the majority being in
Estonian, Russian and English. There will also be a selection of
children's books. On 16 August 2013
Tallinn Airport unveiled a
gallery and started exhibiting artists' work in the Passenger
Terminal. The gallery of rotating exhibitions on the 1st floor of the
Passenger Terminal is open to all arriving and departing passengers as
well as those seeing them off or meeting them.
There are three bus stops at the terminal, which are located on level
0 in front of the arrivals area.
The terminal also houses 3 smoking areas.
On 1 September 2013, the airport opened an automatic border control
system, that should accelerate procedures for passengers travelling
out of the Schengen area. The fully automated border crossing system
consists of two automated gates and six registering kiosks.

Point-to-point terminal (Terminal 2)
On 12 April 2012
Tallinn Airport announced, that it will build next
year a new five-berth terminal for low-cost airlines, which will be
easily removable and extendable. The new terminal would be
intended for low-cost airlines such as Ryanair,
Easyjet and Norwegian
that do not want to pay that much to the airport and do not need many
The new terminal is intended for the service of one million passengers
and the space liberated from low-cost airlines would pass into the
disposition of Nordica and other traditional airlines, such as
Lufthansa, SAS, LOT and Finnair.
To date, the construction has not yet started and the airport has not
announced plans to begin construction.
Business aviation hangar complex
On 20 March 2013 the airport authorities announced a public
procurement for constructing a new hangar complex. The cornerstone of
the new complex was laid on 27 September 2013. It has a surface
area of 5,230 m2 (56,300 sq ft), is located right next
to the existing General Aviation Terminal and will be servicing
aircraft within a distance of up to 3,000 kilometers from Tallinn. The
complex is intended for accommodating a total of nine planes, eight of
them are mid-size business jets and one aircraft the size of a large
corporate aircraft. It consists of five hangars: the Hangar 1 for the
large aircraft (such as Boeing 737,
Airbus A318 or Airbus A319),
hangars 2 to 5 are intended for smaller business jets (Bombardier
Challenger 605, Learjet 60). The whole complex was opened on 15 April
2014 and its operator is Panaviatic, which is going to expand its
business jet operations from
Tallinn Airport. Apart from providing
hangarage for business jets, the new complex also offers MRO services
by Panaviatic’s subsidiary AS Panaviatic Maintenance. The total
investment was close to 5 million euros and the whole complex is the
largest in the Baltic states.
Tallinn Airport has 4 cargo terminals with total warehouse space of ca
11,600 m². The size of warehouse in Cargo 1 is 3601 m²
and 2066 m² are dedicated for the office area. Cargo terminal is
operated by different operators (including integrators) and Tallinn
Airport Ltd. only acts as a lessor. The size of Cargo 2 warehouse is
1255 m² and 758 m² are dedicated for office space. Cargo 2
is operated by TNT Express Worldwide. Other logistics operators
include DHL, UPS and FedEx.

CAF Urbos tram in
Tallinn Airport tram terminal
The tramline "4" extension to airport terminal was opened on 1
September 2017. Trams mostly go with 6 minute intervals, journey
from downtown to airport (and vice versa) takes 18-19 minutes. Trams
run through the 150-metre long Ülemiste tram tunnel beneath the
Tallinn-Narva railway. 
The line "2" offers a connection to the centre of Tallinn, Tallinn
Passenger Port and Mõigu. After opening the tram line extension
the stop where from the line nr "2" goes towards city centre (and
passenger port) was transferred to the other side of parking house
(currently under construction) and it is not directly visible from the
public transportation terminal (or tram terminal). Therefore, when
going to city centre it is better (easier) to take tram than bus. The
nr "2" bus which makes a stop in the tram terminal goes not to city
centre but towards
Mõigu (opposite direction). This might confuse
tourists who might happen to take the bus going to opposite direction.
The buses go mostly with 20 minute intervals.
The line "65" provides a connection to
Tallinn AirportShuttle share taxi provides a connection from Tallinn
Airport to any location in Tallinn.
Long-distance services include:
intercity bus line "Täistunniekspress" (English: "Hourlyexpress"),
operated by Lux Express, departs from
Tallinn to Tartu.
Tartu arrives at the airport .
intercity bus line "158", operated by SEBE, stops at the airport once
a day. and departs from
Tallinn to Tartu. The bus stops at Kose
crossroad and the Mäo and Puhu crossroads.
The nearest station is Ülemiste train station, which lies about 800
metres from the airport, near Ülemiste Keskus. It provides access to
regional rail and commuter rail lines of Elron. The station and
Tallinn Airport are connected through the bus "65" and tram line "4".
The airport is accessed by the expressway (which shares the same
route with the Estonian national road ). The expressway (which
follows the Estonian national road ) intersects with the expessway
900 metres away from the airport towards the city centre. The
expressway (Via Baltica, follows the Estonian national road ) is
easily accessible via the 3.8 km (2.4 mi) long dual
carriageway Järvevana Road, which provides a direct connection with
at the intersection.
Incidents and accidents
On 6 September 1938 at 5 p.m. EET, a Warsaw Aero Club RWD-10, piloted
by Zbigniew Olenski, crashed into
Lake Ülemiste during an aerobatic
demonstration. The crash was caused by a pilot error, who misestimated
the altitude during low-flight manoeuvres, and by muggy weather, which
complicated the detection of a water surface. The depth of the crash
site was only about 1 metre, which helped to absorb the shock but was
too shallow for the pilot to drown. The survived with head injuries.
The plane's propeller and landing gear was damaged in the crash, but
the plane was recovered and repaired by the staff of the seaplane
In January 1966, an
Ilyushin Il-14 flying from Kuressaare to Tallinn,
made a landing on ice of
Lake Ülemiste short of the runway 08 at its
destination in nearly zero-visibility conditions. The incident was
caused by an error of the air traffic controller, who misestimated the
plane's altitude. The frontal landing gear was damaged during the
unexpected landing, but the plane was otherwise intact. It was towed
the same day to the airport. No injuries were reported, the passengers
walked to the terminal across the frozen lake.
On 16 November 1990, an
Tu-134 flying from
Moscow was hijacked during a domestic flight by a hijacker demanded to
be taken to Sweden. The aircraft with 64 passengers aboard returned
and landed at
Tallinn Airport. Upon landing, the hijacker was arrested
by Soviet authorities. No casualties were reported.
On 18 September 1991 at 14:30 EEST (11:30 UTC), an Euro-Flite Dassault
